Transfer deadline day graphic
At home, in the office, at school or out and about - with the BBC you will not miss a single move on deadline day

Will Arsenal finally sign a defensive midfielder? Will Chelsea swap some wingers around? And at the bottom of the table, who will land a striker to help beat the drop?

It is time to find out as the January transfer window closes on Monday, 2 February - at 23:00 GMT in England and midnight in Scotland.

The window has been relatively quiet so far but football clubs often end up leaving their shopping until the last minute.

Whether it is a new goalkeeper for Hartlepool or four new strikers for Harry Redknapp, you will not miss a deal with BBC Sport.
